GRAPE EXPECTATIONS: This week HOMEGROWN chats with Sharon, a gardener and Waylon Jennings fan from grape-growing country in upstate New York. We knew she had a good sense of humor when we read this line in her profile: “I love my garden, my cats, my dogs, my husband, and my kids (not necessarily in that order—it varies from day to day).” We talked to Sharon about that sometimes first-place finisher, her garden, plus her plans for her homestead. Got advice or resources to share with Sharon on off-the-grid cabins? Don’t be shy: Post a comment below!
What is Meet Your Neighbors? Most of us spend a fair amount of time tending our online gardens, but it’s easy to forget there’s a real person behind every quiche recipe, chicken inquiry, and hoophouse design here on HOMEGROWN. Well, nuts to that! MYN gives us a chance to meet over the back fence and shake hands. (Or maybe hug? We’re huggers. But no pressure.)
